Pointers / Personal Note:
- I think foodie bloggers have more advantage to this contest. They have more experience writing about this topic.
- You need a lot of time to experience new restos before writing about any of them.
- Check if the resto you want to write about is already in the list and if nobody has written a review yet. Chances are, someone else could have beaten you to it.
- you might have a better chance getting a 1st review if the resto you want to write about is NOT on the list. You can add a resto you want to review.
- last day of this contest is on December 15, 2010. Number of 1st reviews accumulated will be tallied at the end of the contest.
